COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew our beer in New York, about halfway between the hop fields of the Pacific Northwest and the hop fields of Kent, England. So we use earthy English hops to build the foundation and bright citrusy American hops to bring the noise in the rambunctious IPA we call BLAST! British Maris Otter and German Pilsner malts lends solidity, balance and bready flavors to brace up a beer that’s beautifully hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling. Minerally hop bitterness is followed by a shock wave of flavor and aroma. You won’t even know what hit you.

Malts: Scottish Floor-malted Maris Otter, German Pilsner Malt

Hops: Willamette, Magnum, Cascade, Fuggle, Aurora, Zythos, Bravo, Simcoe, Sorachi Ace, Amarillo, Experiment 6300

Dorwart (2522) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Thin offwhite head of fine bubbles. Nice citrusy aroma with mangos, pineapple, light grainy malts and some lime. Color is a nice dark orange. Flavor has lots of caramel malts, light piney hops, some white pepper and grapefruit pith. Zippy and fizzy mouthfeel with a light alcohol presence. Finishes dry and puckering with lingering grapefruit. A decent IIPA.

TheJester (2509) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is way bigger than the flavour. The aroma is complex, with every non-New Zealand hop flavour being accounted for. The flavour is interesting, with stuff like tobacco and medicine, and pot, but it doesn't match up to the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Sample from Durham WBF. Had never heard of this one but quickly found out that "Blast" means "Blast of hops." Subtle this ain’t. Huge hoppy nose; over the top. Malt and tealike taste as well. More golden than orange in appearance. Maybe it was too late in the day, but this was too much for me.

TXBadger (2496) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy darker golden amber color with off-white head. Pine, herbal notes, floral notes, and light fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a nice stickiness for a DIPA.

AWISLguy (2487) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach - saving a bit yet, but had inspiration from reading article from the brewer, thanks bro! Pours Poured an orangey yellow with an off white head. Almost no lacing. Aroma has citrus and pine. And more citrus and pine. A bit of bubblegum later. Taste is of citrus and pine, heavy resin, and some sweeter caramelly malts in the solid backbone. Medium bodied and sticky. Light alcohol presence. Finishes more to the bitter side of bittersweet. This is not a top 10 DIPA, or even close to it, but it is solid and tasty, and likely this breweries’ best offering.

Calisky (2474) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2015
Couleur orangée, très légère mousse beige. Nez fort houblonné fruité, résine et pin, note de levures, réminiscence de fruits rouges. Gout houblonné amer, malté, caramel blond, fruits jaunes, herbes, notes menthe, baton de réglisse, légères baies avec longue amertume de pin et reglisse en fin de bouche. Very good stuff Brooklyn!

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Draught at Tyler’s Taproom in Durham. Pours cloudy orange-gold with nice white head. The aroma is serious grapefruit and is hoppy as crap. The flavor is ultra piney with some grapefruit, orange, garlic, and a tiny bit of cat. Sweet malt backbone, almost like jelly. Moderately bitter finish and clean, hoppy aftertaste. Tons of hop flavor without much harshness. Nice.

Bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy orange with a decent, off-white head. Aroma is orange, citrus, medium pine. Taste is resinous, piney, some citrus, medium caramel. Fairly full with medium carbonation. Very easy to drink.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2008
On tap in the Blind Tiger NYC. Hops and fruit, orange in appearance with a thin white head, yet good lace around the glass. Bitter hops, yet sweet and fruity. Crisp, citrus fruit. Decent ale, plenty of flavour.

Slipstream (2444) - USA - SEP 27, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2012 On tap at Good Beer. Piney aroma. This is an astringent, resiny IPA, but it feels a bit thin. Pretty dry and woody, with a nice autumnal feel, making it appropriate for the beginning of autumn. A little orange peel and some sharp hops. It is hard to believe the ABV is over 8. This seems like a regular good IPA to me. If this is Mr. Oliver’s killer IPA, then I’m still not a convert.
